Officials in Cumberland County say a military helicopter was forced to make an emergency landing Thursday afternoon.

The OH-58D Kiowa Warrior went down at 4380 Linden Road in Linden. That's north of Fayetteville.

Pictures from Chopper 11 HD showed the aircraft sitting upright in a field with light damage - including a piece broken off the tail.

There were no reports of serious injuries, but officials said two people on board would be transported to Womack Army Medical Center as a precaution.

Officials said the aircraft belongs to the 82nd Airborne Division.
